It's a... Literary Magazine!
That's right folks, today at "Get Your Read On" we officially introduced our new online literary magazine, Verbal Pyrotechnics, a magazine exclusively dedicated to showcasing teen literature.
There are tons of literary magazines out there, but almost all of them only print literature targeting adults. Sure, there are plenty of kid's magazines that print short fiction, poetry and non-fiction, but these magazines target the younger set. For teens, there are few venues that showcase short fiction, poetry and narrative non-fiction. That's where VP comes in. Our goal is to give teen authors a market to publish this type of work so that the world of teen literature isn't restricted to novels. Sure, novels are great, but those other forms of writing are important too.
Here's a sketch of a possible logo for Verbal Pyrotechnics.
We will be sending out a call for submissions very soon so check back again. If you have any magazine-related questions, you can email me (the Editor-in-Chief) at editor(at)verbalpyrotechnics(dot)com.
